Peter's Pasta al' Tonno Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 2)
Reviewed: May 28, 2004
This was very good! Husband had a HUGE plate. Excellent if you don't want a mushy, soupy casserole. After reading the reviews, I eyeballed about 4 servings of spaghetti to cook, not sure what that amounted to weight-wise. For a little something extra, I threw some green beans in with the tuna; broccoli/peas would probably be good too.

Not only because of reading prior reviews, but also because it was obvious to me that this was just WAY too much pasta for this recipe, I cut the paste to ONE FOURTH. And once I did this, it was actually pretty good. (This of course also means it's only 2 servings.) I thought the resulting flavor deserved a 4, but I knocked it back because I can see where the original recipe would be *extremely* bland with all that pasta and cutting it by that much was a pretty drastic measure.

The recipe was bland to my taste, so I added a can of cream of mushroom soup, and some brocolli to the dish and it give a very creamy sauce.

I haven't tried Peter's recipe, but I make a great tuna pasta which is pretty similar. First, I would not use spaghetti, fettucine, or linguini. Try to stick with penne or rotini. Do not overcook the pasta! Second, while the pasta is cooking prepare 2 cans (6 oz each) of drained albacore tuna (flaked) in a large bowl. Use the tuna can to measure the olive oil. I usually fill it up half way. Add olive oil to tuna, then salt and pepper to taste. Mince 4 cloves of garlic in bowl and stir. When the pasta is done, drain and run under cold water. Then add pasta to tuna mixture. Add more salt and pepper. And 2 more cloves of garlic. You can eat this cold, or nuke it in the microwave for 2 minutes.

Used two 6-oz cans of tuna. Still produced insufficient sauce for a pound of pasta. Came out rather gluey.
